  1. If anyone else is looking at this - if you change support density to 0 then the tree supports will be hollow again.
  2. Seems like I remember tree supports being hollow. Why on 4.6.1 is that no longer the case? The tree supports are taking on the support pattern selected under the support section for some reason. Thoughts?
  3. I had the travels line type selected. Doh!
  4. I recently updated from 4.2 to 4.5. I'm now experiencing reeeeeeeallly long slice times when tree support is enabled and I'm also seeing these purple line artifacts. What could be going on here?
  5. Someone else had this issue in 3.2.1
  6. Issue opened - https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/5598
  7. Downgraded to Cura 3.6 and the issue persists. I think it has something to do with the model, but I've already run a Netfabb repair on it. It's manifold so...I'm not sure what else could be going on.
  8. Hello! I've never seen this before using 3.6 and I've been using tree supports for a bit. I'm currently using Cura 4.0. Printing a hollow object, Cura is putting these small "nubbins" on the print bed. The nubs around the perimeter are there to support a small chamfer. I'm not sure why Cura is putting the nubbins inside the middle rectangular section. they are there regardless of which slicing tolerance I choose.They increase or decrease as the tree support branch distance is raised and lowered. I'd like to get rid of them. Thoughts? Is the issue specific to 4.0?
  9. No. I'm setting the machine settings in Cura in addition to the profile settings. The profile setting is overriding the machine setting set via Cura.
  10. Got my answer (don't know why I didn't think of this before). I set the flow to 80% in the profile and left the machine settings at 104%. Then I printed a 25 mm cube with .48 wall thickness. The extruded wall thickness was .40 so...There you go. Profile settings override machine settings.
  11. Howdy! On my Ender 2, I need to set the flow rate in Cura 3.6 to 104.5%. No problemo, right? Well, instead of doing it on a per print / per profile basis, I'd like to set it and forget it. So I learned that I can use M221 S104.5 in Marlin to set the flow rate directly in the Gcode of the printer profile. That way, my flow rate is set for each print right? Cool. Well then I started thinking (and this is where I mess myself up)..."If I set the flow rate percentage to 104.5% in the machine settings, but then the flow rate is defined as 100% (default value) in the slicer, which one win
